WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A THIGH LIFT?

Cosmetic Surgery Dubai | 30 December 2020

A thigh lift, or thighplasty, is designed to improve the appearance of the thighs by reducing excess skin and, in some cases, excess fat. This surgical procedure offers smoother, better-toned thighs with more proportionate contours in relation to the lower body.

What are the benefits of a thigh lift?

Tighter skin on the thighs

Laxity on the thighs can create folds of skin that look unattractive. Most people turn to thigh lift surgery to improve the sagging skin on their inner or outer thighs. A thigh lift removes excess skin and fat to reveal tighter, smoother contours.

Enhanced thigh contours

After massive weight loss, stubborn fat is likely to remain. The appearance of cellulite will likely become more prominent, and skin dimpling will worsen. Thigh lift surgery removes excess folds of skin and fat to reveal more slender and toned thighs.

Improved physical comfort

When there is loose, flabby skin on the thighs, it can make it uncomfortable to wear jeans or partake in daily activities. After thigh lift surgery, you will likely feel comfortable enough to wear different styles of clothing that fit your new thigh contours.

revitalize the eyes by removing excess skin

Plastic Surgery Dubai | 25 December 2020

Sagging, puffy eyelids can cause the entire face to appear aged, exhausted, or upset. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure that revitalizes the eyes by removing excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can restore radiance and youthfulness to the eye area and correct vision obstruction caused by drooping eyelids. Dr. Vigo offers several eyelid enhancement options to provide his patients with a personalized surgical plan that achieves their unique cosmetic goals. Patients may improve the appearance of their upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both for optimal rejuvenation of the eyes.

REJUVENATE YOUR EYES

Of all our facial features, the eyes tend to attract the most attention. In many cultures, the elegance of the eyes is a critical component of facial allure. When the eyes are hidden beneath sagging eyelids or disguised by wrinkles, they can lose their luminescence. Eyelid surgery can remove excess eyelid tissue and tighten the remaining tissues to emphasize the natural beauty of your eyes.

REFRESH YOUR APPEARANCE

If you have wrinkles around your eyes, drooping eyelids, or puffy under-eye bags, you may look older than you feel. Sagging eyelids can also contribute to a fatigued or unapproachable appearance. Eyelid surgery can alleviate these concerns to help you appear refreshed and restore a more youthful aesthetic to your face.

RESTORE YOUR VISION

Over time, many men and women experience eyelid hooding as a result of aging, lifestyle factors, and genetics. Some individuals can develop so much excess skin and tissue laxity of the eyelids that the eyelids physically obscure their vision. If your eyelid hooding limits your full range of sight, you may want to consider eyelid surgery to restore your sightlines.

Dr. Vigo will assess the condition of your eyelids as well as your facial anatomy to devise the most appropriate surgical approach to meet your goals. You may benefit from upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, or a combination of both to achieve the desired results. Dr. Vigo closes eyelid surgery incisions with surgical tape, skin adhesive, removable sutures, or absorbable sutures.

WHAT CAN A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT ACHIEVE?

Plastic Surgery Dubai | 20 December 2020

The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a surgical procedure that uses your own fat from liposuction to improve the fullness and shape of the buttocks. This fat transfer procedure has the double benefit of creating more slender body contours while also enhancing the size and shape of your derrière. Stubborn fat that is difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise is removed and then used to augment the butt. In addition, the Brazilian Butt Lift is an excellent alternative to butt implants.

WHAT CAN THE BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT ACHIEVE?

A FULLER BACKSIDE

The Brazilian Butt Lift adds volume to increase the size of the butt to achieve a larger and fuller backside. After your procedure, you can have the butt size you have always wanted and no longer worry about filling out your jeans, dresses, or skirts.

A ROUNDER, SHAPELIER BACKSIDE

Butt augmentation with the Brazilian Butt Lift allows Dr. Vigo to improve the shape of the butt to produce a rounder “bubble butt.” Many patients experience a boost in confidence knowing that their butt finally has their ideal shape.

SLENDER CONTOURS

Because the Brazilian Butt Lift uses liposuction to harvest fat from unwanted areas, you can eliminate the stubborn fat that diet and exercise could not. This can slim down those thunder thighs, flatten your problematic belly pooch, or allow you to wave goodbye to jiggly arm fat.

Liposuction eliminates stubborn fat from areas that are difficult to target

Plastic Surgery Dubai | 15 December 2020

Liposuction eliminates stubborn fat from areas that are difficult to target with diet and exercise. This surgical procedure removes localized fat with a thin hollow tube (cannula) inserted through several tiny incisions in the skin. The cannula is connected to a vacuum device that removes the excess fat with a suctioning technique, and the result is more slender and attractive body contours.

What can liposuction do for me?

FIT INTO CLOTHING BETTER

Have you ever found the top you were looking for only to discover that after you try it on, your abdomen noticeably protrudes? Or maybe a pair of jeans fits you perfectly in the hips but bulges above the waistband. Liposuction eliminates fat from problem areas so you can fit into clothing better and have a wider variety of options that flatter your figure. After liposuction, you can actually enjoy going shopping for new clothes or even looking through your closet knowing that your clothes will adorn your body in a more fetching way.

TAKE THE STRESS OFF

Carrying extra weight can put stress on certain parts of the body, such as the back, knees, and hips. Although liposuction should not be looked at as a form of weight loss and does not result in a dramatic reduction in weight, the excess fat can be enough to make a difference when it comes to straining your body. Liposuction can result in a small amount of weight reduction and may encourage patients to continue with a healthy lifestyle that allows them to lose more weight and take even more stress off their bodies.

BE MORE CONFIDENT

You may have struggled for several months or even years to eliminate stubborn fat to no avail, and these enduring bulges may cause you to be self-conscious about your appearance. After liposuction, you will feel happy knowing you look good, which will help make you feel more comfortable in your own skin and give you the confidence you deserve.

ARE YOU CONSIDERING A BREAST LIFT?

Plastic Surgery Dubai | 12 December 2020

For many women, a youthful, perky bust is a source of confidence in their feminine identity. Unfortunately, time and life experience have a significant impact on the appearance of breast shape and texture. Weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and even the natural aging process all work together to damage the integrity of your breast aesthetic. Since the problem typically derives from skin and breast tissue texture and tightness, no amount of diet or exercise will help remedy sagging breasts. The only option to reclaim a bust that looks as young as you feel is to undergo breast lift surgery.

BREAST SHAPE

Often, the effects of time and life experience warp your breast shape, producing sagging and pendulous contours. Sometimes, these changes affect one breast more than the other, leaving you with noticeably misshapen, mismatched breasts. Breast lift surgery corrects the shape of the breasts to provide you with a breast appearance you are excited to flaunt.

BREAST FIRMNESS

This procedure restores your natural breast texture, providing you with the satisfaction of once again having breasts that are voluptuous and more firm to the touch. It achieves this feat by removing excess skin to correct sagging and folding of the breast tissue.

BREAST PROJECTION

When sagging occurs, a common condition that women exhibit is a repositioning of their nipples and breast projection. Rather than projecting slightly up or straight out from your body, the nipples and breast tissue begin to point downward. Breast lift surgery repositions the nipples and recenters the breast tissue to create a natural, robust appearance.

THINKING ABOUT HAVING A FACELIFT?

Plastic Surgery Dubai | 9 December 2020

As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity because of the breakdown in collagen. In addition, the deep anatomical structures of the face begin to change. These include the muscles of the cheeks and around the eyes, as well as the fat in the cheeks. 

All of these factors combined can often make the face and neck wrinkle and sag, causing many people to look older than they actually feel. If you are concerned about the signs of aging on your face, a facelift can be the ideal cosmetic procedure for you.

REDUCED WRINKLES

Over time, the collagen in our skin breaks down, leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Facelift surgery removes loose, excess skin to produce a smooth, youthful skin texture that will take years off your appearance.

A MORE DEFINED JAWLINE

Displaced and drooping tissues along the jawline can create the appearance of jowls. Facelift surgery tightens the muscles and removes excess tissue for a sleek jawline that creates a more defined, attractive transition from the face to the neck.

FIRMER NECK AND FACIAL CONTOURS

Sagging corners of the mouth and drooping tissues in the cheeks and neck can significantly age your appearance. Facelift surgery repositions the underlying tissues and removes any excess to achieve firmer contours in the face and neck.

GET YOUR BODY BACK WITH A MOMMY MAKEOVER

Plastic Surgery Dubai | 3 December 2020

After giving birth, a mother’s life becomes a blur of changes; some of these changes are far less welcome than others. Pregnancy and nursing can have a significant impact on a woman’s figure and may lead to issues such as saggy and deflated breasts, excess abdominal skin, and stubborn fat deposits. 

By combining several procedures aimed at common traits caused by pregnancy and nursing, a Mommy Makeover is specifically tailored toward restoring a mother’s body.

GET YOUR BODY BACK

After giving birth, there is a lot of societal pressure for a woman to “get her body back.” Unfortunately, this is impossible for most women, since sagging skin and breasts cannot be fixed by spending hours at the gym or adopting the newest diet trend. The only resolution to these problems is plastic surgery.

RESTORE YOUR CONFIDENCE

The extreme lifestyle, biological, and hormonal changes that a new mother endures can lead to an overwhelming feeling of inadequacy and depression. In many cases, women who have taken perfect care of their bodies feel trapped in their sagging or stretched skin as their self-confidence diminishes. A Mommy Makeover can resolve those feelings by removing the negative physical repercussions after pregnancy and childbirth.

GIVE YOUR BODY WHAT IT NEEDS

No two pregnancies are alike; different mothers have different concerns that need to be addressed during a Mommy Makeover. While your concerns may be centered around stretched abdominal skin, another mother may want to focus more on the shape of her breasts after nursing. Regardless of what part of your body needs the most attention, a customized Mommy Makeover will help you restore your naturally feminine physique.

WHAT CAN EAR SURGERY ACHIEVE?

Plastic Surgery Dubai | 1 December 2020

Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a plastic surgery procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the ears. Ear surgery can reshape the ears, improve their size or protrusion, correct concerns, or correct the appearance of stretched or gauged earlobes. Patients who are missing one or both ears from birth or an injury can have new ears constructed with otoplasty. Dr. Vigo performs ear surgery to help enhance patients’ ears and improve their appearance, confidence, and self-image.

CORRECT EAR DEFORMITIES OR INJURIES

Otoplasty can correct ear deformities or injuries such as lop ear, cupped ear, shell ear, and cauliflower ear. Surgery can help your ears blend in well with your other features and balance your facial profile.

REDUCE EAR SIZE OR PROTRUSION

Ears that stick out noticeably from the head or that are too prominent may cause feelings of self-consciousness. Dr. Vigo can perform otoplasty to make your ears smaller and lessen the degree to which they protrude from the side of your head. After surgery, your ears will look more balanced and will no longer draw attention.

IMPROVE EARLOBES

Some earlobes are naturally large or develop creases or wrinkles. Others may become stretched or develop unsightly holes due to wearing heavy earrings or gauges. Otoplasty can correct these issues and restore a more natural appearance to the earlobes.

REBUILD A MISSING EAR

Some candidates for ear surgery are missing one or both ears because of an injury or from birth. Missing the outer ears may not affect hearing, but it can draw unwanted attention. Dr. Vigo can use natural tissues and cartilage to reconstruct a missing ear and restore your appearance.

BOOST SELF-ESTEEM AND CONFIDENCE

Many individuals experience self-esteem issues, poor self-confidence, social anxiety, or ridicule due to the appearance of their ears. Children are particularly vulnerable to emotional and psychological trauma from the mockery of other children. Otoplasty can enhance your ears and boost your self-esteem and confidence by providing more proportionate ears.

Breast Augmentation Dubai – The Benefits

Breast Augmentation Dubai | 15 November 2020

Women choose primary breast augmentation surgery to increase the size and proportion of their breast(s). In addition, women choose revision-augmentation surgery (replacement of an existing breast implant) to correct or improve the result of a primary augmentation surgery. According to literature reports, most women who have undergone breast implant surgery have reported high levels of satisfaction with their body image and the shape, feel and size of their implants.67 In Sientra’s Clinical Study, most primary and revision-augmentation patients were pleased with the results of their implant surgery. The results showed that most women who underwent primary or revision-augmentation with the Study Implants felt their breast implants made them feel more feminine and more attractive. In addition, the majority of these women indicated that their breast implants made them feel better about themselves. For more information on the benefits of breast augmentation with Sientra’s Implants based on the results of the Clinical Study, refer to Section 8.3 of this brochure.

Preparing For Breast Augmentation Dubai With Silicone Gel Breast Implants

Deciding to have breast augmentation with implants is an important personal decision that has both benefits and risks. You should decide whether it is the right choice for you after discussing all the options with your plastic surgeon and any other doctors who are treating you. This section will give you the information you need to make an informed choice and help you make a number of decisions that have to be made before your surgery.

Should I Have Breast Augmentation Dubai?

Breast augmentation with Silicone Gel Breast Implants
is one option that may be available to you if you wish to enhance the appearance of your breasts. A breast revision-augmentation surgery may be appropriate if you have had
a breast augmentation with implants but need to complete, improve upon, or correct a part of that first surgery (called the primary augmentation). Whether breast augmentation is right for you depends on many things; some of them are personal. You should take into account your medical condition, general health, lifestyle, how you feel emotionally, and your breast size and shape before surgery, as well as your hopes for breast size and shape after surgery. All of these things will affect the outcome of your surgery. Discuss your goals for breast augmentation with your doctors. You may also wish to consult your family and friends and breast implant support groups, to help you learn about the options and decide. Many women who choose implants as part of their augmentation say their augmented breast(s) help them feel more self-confident, feel better about their bodies, and/or give them a greater feeling of well-being. Other women are not satisfied with their implants because of complications, like capsular contracture, rupture, or pain.

Breast Augmentation Dubai
When you and your doctor decide what you want your breasts to look like after augmentation, your doctor can help you choose the right implant to get the effect you want. Your body type, height, and weight will be factors your surgeon considers to help you achieve the best result. IMPLANT SIZE, SHAPE AND SURFACE Your surgeon will examine your breast tissue and skin to figure out if you will have enough to cover the implant. It is possible that you will not have enough skin and/or breast tissue to cover the implant you desire. In this case, you may be offered several choices. Breast implants that are too big for the amount of breast tissue or skin can cause problems: they can actually speed up the effects of gravity; your breasts may droop or sag earlier with implants that are too large. Implants that are too large can also cause implant extrusion, skin wrinkling, infection, and hematoma. You may be able to feel folds on the implant created by it being squeezed too tightly by the surrounding tissue and skin. If you do not have enough skin, and it is stretched too thin over the implant, you may be able to feel or see the edges of the implant under your skin surface after surgery. As shown in Figure 4, the Implants come with either a smooth shell or a textured shell; you should speak with your surgeon to find out whether he or she recommends smooth or textured implants for you.

RESTYLANE FOR FACIAL REJUVENATION

Fillers in Dubai | 13 November 2020

Restylane® is an FDA approved dermal filler used to smooth wrinkles and give the face youthful contours. It was the first hyaluronic acid filler approved for cosmetic use in the U.S. in 2003, and it has been successfully used in millions of treatments across the world.

What are Restylane and Restylane Silk used for?

The most common uses of Restylane are to:

soften the “parentheses” around the nose and mouth

hide lower eyelid bags or dark circles

lift and rejuvenate brows and upper eyelids

enhance lips by adding fullness while staying natural-looking

define lip borders

soften “lipstick lines” around the mouth

give noses more beautiful shapes and profiles

smooth chins

smooth skin wrinkles and acne scars

provide fullness to earlobes and provide support to earrings when there is damage to the ear lobes

straighten jawlines

lift the corners of the mouth

soften “marionette lines”

add fullness to cheeks, temples, chins or wherever it is needed

rejuvenate necklines

As a “thinner” version of Restylane, Restylane Silk is most commonly used to:

smooth “lipstick lines” and other fine lines, especially around the mouth

add fullness to lips

hide lower eyelid bags

provide fullness to hollows under eyes

How do Restylane and Restylane Silk work?

Restylane and Restylane Silk replenish the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid, which is a “water-loving” molecule found naturally in the human body that keeps skin full and hydrated. Replenishing hyaluronic acid rejuvenates and adds volume to the skin, diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles and leaving patients with natural looking results.

Patients often ask about the differences between Restylane and Restylane Lyft because they are very similar products. The gel is initially made the same for both, but with Restylane, the gel is cut into smaller pieces than with Restylane Lyft. This means that Restylane can be placed more superficially in the skin, which makes it ideal for fine lines and facial contouring.
